Sometimes a Melody Sounds Like a Memory

I love this line from Eric Church's song "Springsteen."  I may have even blogged about it before.  But it is so true.  While I was in Arizona, Daynah and I watched Juno together.  One of the songs had a silly, catchy line that we repeated for several days.  "Here is the church and here is the steeple.  We sure are cute for two ugly people."  I told Daynah that because we laughed so much at that, it was going to become a memory for us and every time we heard those lines, we would think of the time we watched that movie together.  I don't know if she believed me, but I know it is true in my own life.  Most songs that have memories for me come from movies.  Sometimes it is just the scenes from the movies that are the memory, but sometimes it is the people I was with when I saw the movie.  Tonight, after seeing a movie, I got in the car and the song "My Sharona" came on.  I immediately thought of friends from high school.  In case you didn't know, this song was in the movie "Reality Bites."  I don't remember anything about the movie except that song and that Wynona Rider was in it and maybe Ben Stiller.  But it was a favorite for Nicole, Rebecca, and me.  And it reminds me of the friendship I had with both of them.  So, sometimes a melody sounds like a memory...
